1968 AMC AMBASSADOR SST - SPORTY EDITION AMBASSADOR
THE SIXTIES WERE A TIME WHEN ALL CAR MANUFACTURERS WERE THROWING OUT VARIOUS MUSCLE AND SPORTY PRODUCTS. IN 1968 THE AMC REBEL WAS THE SPORTY MUSCLE EDITION. THE AMBASSADOR WAS THE TOP OF THE LINE AT AMC AND GOT A DOSE OF SPORTINESS WITH THE SST EDITION. THIS 118 INCH WHEELBASE WAS POWERED BY A 290 V8 ENGINE WITH 200 BHP. AN AMBASSADOR 2-DOOR SOLD FOR $3,172 AND THE 4-DOOR SEDAN SOLD FOR $ $3,151, TWENTY ONE DOLLARS LESS THAN THE COUPE. WITH THIS PRICE YOU WOULD GET A POSH INTERIOR, FULL VINYL ROOF, SPORTY MAG WHEELS OR WIRE WHEELS, AND AN EXTERIOR DESIGN THAT WAS SVELT, CLEAN, AND CLUTTER FREE. QUITE A GOOD LOOKING CAR WHETHER IT WAS AN ORDINARY AMBASSADOR OR THIS UPGRADE MODEL. IF YOU WANTED, YOU COULD ORDER THE OPTIONAL BUZZER THAT SOUNDED WHEN YOU LEFT YOUR LIGHTS ON. AN INDUSTRY FIRST, I BELIEVE. ALSO, AMBASSADORS WERE THE 1ST MODERATELY PRICED CAR TO INSTALL STANDARD AIR CONDITIONING. WITH THE DEMISE OF INNOVATIVE CAR MAKER FOR MANY DECADES, NASH, AMERICAN MOTORS INC., WAS FERVENTLY CLAWING IT'S WAY INTO THE CAR MARKET. CASE IN POINT, HERE IS WHAT AMC OFFERED TO THE PUBLIC IN 1968: REBEL 550, 770, AND SST, MUSCLE CAR AMX, PONY CAR JAVELIN, AMBASSADOR, AMBASSADOR DPL, AND THE SST. ENGINE CHOICES DESIGNATED TO CERTAIN MODELS AMOUNTED TO SEVEN. TWO 6 CYLINDERS, AND FIVE EIGHT. TOTAL AMOUNT OF ALL AMBASSADOR MODELS FOR '68 WERE 54,681 UNITS. THANKS VERY MUCH FOR VIEWING THIS ORIGINAL SURVIVOR AMBASSADOR SST.

The Unfortunate History of the AMC Pacer
Behind all the jokes and insults, the AMC Pacer is actually a car with a great deal of history. It began as radical new design from an underdog company. In an attempt to combat the big, bland, boxy cars from Detroit's "Big Three," little American Motors Corporation decided to build something a little different. Their one-eyed car stylist Dick Teague proposed a small, wide car with big windows and smooth areodynamics. Americans had never seen anything like it. This in-depth documentary tells the true story of the Pacer. Unbeknownst to many, the car persevered through manufacturing setbacks, government regulations, and many other troubles. Featuring a ton of old car advertisements and rare footage of AMC's factory, the film helps paint a picture of the Pacer's world. Director Joe Ligo sits down with AMC stylist Vincent Geraci, author Patrick Foster, and television personalities John Davis and Pat Goss from PBS's MotorWeek.
